This is the bread made by drovers in the Australian outback. It's great camping food as it's traditonally cooked in the coals of a camp fire.
- The best way to make this is to mix together the dry ingredients then add the liquid and butter and mix well and then knead it for about 5 minutes.
- Then wrap it in a double layer of greased foil and place it in the coals of the campfire, poking it in and retrieving it a bit later hoping it's done.
- I've also had it where you just throw the dough into the coals and pull off the blacked outside when it's done and eat the inner part.
- To cook it in the oven preheat to 350 degrees F.
- Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar and mix well. Rub or cut in the butter. Stir in the milk to form a dough.
- Shape into a flattened ball and place on a greased baking sheet or in a round cake tin and bake for about 30 minutes.
- Doing it this way though is not traditional and just won't taste the same.
- You eat it straight away while still hot in thick slices with butter, golden syrup, jam or vegemite.
- This is great camping food and always brings back many happy camping memories.
